Mark your calendars for the 11th Annual Session of the Lively M. Wilson Memorial Series on Professionalism: 
It’s Been a Long Time Coming: Change in Legal Education Before, During and After the Pandemic

Legal education has been under fire for many years by those who claim that it has failed to adjust to changing social and economic needs, even as other professions have adopted arguably more nimble educational methods relevant to professional preparation. This talk will evaluate those claims and discuss the changing landscape of legal education, from the gate keepers who shape admission to those who certify licensure once law school is completed.  It will also highlight what law schools are – and are not doing – to try and adapt to changing realities and discuss the impediments to change. The talk will assess the impact of the trends that are pushing law schools to change, from the technological shifts that have been hastened by the COVID19 pandemic to the again louder claims to shatter systemic inequities in society and the profession. Finally, the talk will consider the extent of our obligations as lawyers to embrace these changes in order to comply with our ethical and professional duties.
